  This week's discussion point: After playing the song from the "Fitzcarraldo" soundtrack, I asked the audience to consider how amazing it would be if Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski had hosted a late night TV talk show. I mean really, imagine it:

This guy in the role of the Letterman/Carson/O'Brien character
And this guy in the role of Paul Schaffer/Ed McMahon/Andy Richter

They could talk to celebrities, fight over women, and make eachother eat their own shoes. Hell, I'd watch it.

So who's your fantasy late night TV talk show duo?

Listener comments!

That Chris Isaak cover lured me in then made me laugh. I like the original but like this recasting too. Thanks for playing this. I think Patti Smith could learn a thing or two about covers from this.

It's been said that Imelda Marcos never wore the same pair of shoes twice. Mike, have you ever played the same song twice?
  Tue. 5/8/07 7:48am Mike Lupica:


Glad you liked that amazing Chris Isaak cover. I like pretty much all versions of that song, especially an instrumental version that I used to sing over while on the air. (Ahem.) You can download Les Reines Prochaines' much better version on this page:


And while I certainly appreciate being compared to Imelda Marco (who wouldn't?), I can assure you that I have played MANY songs more than once, twice, or probably even seven or eight times. But I figure if I mix in enough new stuff each week, most of you won't notice.
  Tue. 5/8/07 2:06pm julia factorial:

three of my favorite songs are in your yacht rock mix. i'm not ashamed.
(i'd really love to see you tonight, reminiscing, and how long has this been going on) obviously, i'm missing a strand of DNA somewhere.
  Tue. 5/8/07 2:58pm Mike Lupica:

No shame in liking the Yacht Rock -- it's obvious musical cheese whiz, so there's really no debating the nuances like there is with, say, Steely Dan, which is heavier on the baggage, as last week's playlist discussion is testament to.
  Tue. 5/8/07 6:59pm jeff:

best. talk. show. ever. 2 personal jesus' of mine.

fire up yr traktor & mix werner/klaus & some popol vuh!
  Wed. 5/9/07 1:34am kathy z.:

hhmmm . . . perhaps Herzog and Kinski could invite Blixa Bargeld on the show and the three of them could have a contest to see which German person is able to say the word "disturbing" in the most disturbing fashion (although i am convinced that Blixa would win anyway!)

then the three of them could ROCK OUT on their own versions of YACHT ROCK faves!
  Wed. 5/9/07 1:22pm Crawford:

thats a great Scientists track, one of my all time favourites,great to hear that they are back. You might be interested in the following link, the blog has a n excellent Scientists tribute CD on it from 1993, http://www.somethingilearned.com/2007/04/va-set-it-on-fire-a-tribute-to-the-scientists
  Wed. 5/9/07 5:02pm Kenzo:

I especially enjoy viewing this playlist in Opera, because anywhere I click on your playlist, I am brought to the astronomy picture of the day (for example, when I click on Cap'n Stubing's head).

I know you left out that closing </a> tag after your top picture on purpose just for that reason! Many thanks!
  Wed. 5/9/07 6:46pm jeff:

you know... brother theodore would make an awesome guest.
  Thu. 5/10/07 10:53am boil:

W: This DJ plays Rock and Roll, which is a kind of caterwauling that has little to do with rocks or with anything rolling for that matter, but rather sounds to me like a bunch of people screaming and smashing their foreheads into a wall. Actually it sounds to me like the brutal fornications of nature, which is not that different from murder. At the risk of sounding presumptious concerning a subject with which I have little experience, it sounds like people fucking each other and killing each other at the same time. One has to ask, who would want to listen to such a cacophony? Who would want their ears polluted in this manner?
K: You would you evil cocksucker.
W: I could kill you easily. Why don&#8217;t you step out from behind that baffler and confront me in the manner of an honest person.
K: Because this is what you pay me for, you ludicrous goat lubricator. How am I supposed to get by unless it is by inhaling your farts?
W: I should have had you killed on the Amazon when I had the chance.
K: Coward! Pussy!
W: All right all right, shut up. Our first guest, ladies and gentlemen, is dead. He was electrocuted by a falling cable when a tornado destroyed his home town in Kansas, a province in central United States. He was a minister of God who made himself famous for pitying homosexual sperm for having to navigate through feces. Which reminds me of a particularly obnoxious fellow on my payroll.
K: What did you say, filth-monger? I was busy injecting a steak into the orifice of this prostitute.
W: For God's sake, Klaus, how am I supposed to seque to a commercial?
  Thu. 5/10/07 10:58am Mike Lupica:

I am now officially sorry I ever posed this question.
  Thu. 5/10/07 5:18pm subwhy:

boil, that is hilarious! I'm reading it with an added thick German accent. Mike, keep rockin' us with those fornications of nature.
  Fri. 5/11/07 10:21am boil:

Sank you.
  Sat. 5/12/07 6:47pm Station Mgr Ken:

Great dialogue boil! Best playlist comment thread yet.
  Sun. 5/13/07 3:43pm friendly al:
